, Index number: MDE 13/065/2007

At least 16 of the 17 men arrested on 10 May at a private party in the central Iranian province of Esfahan are known to have been released. All of these men were required to post bail and will reportedly face a trial scheduled to take place in June. They were among 87 people reportedly arrested at the party. The 17 men are believed to have been wearing clothes generally associated with women at the time they were arrested. Amnesty International will continue to monitor the situation closely and take further action if necessary.
